In February of 2010 God introduced me to the love of my life, Jenise Walker. I was a year removed from finishing my Masters and waiting on my first career job when Jenise began working at the same hotel that I was employed with at the time in Huntvsille, AL. I was speechless when she walked past me for the first time and couldn't concentrate on my work for the remainder of the day. LOL. The first question she asked me was "WHAT'S YOUR NAME?" My heart melted and so began the start of something special.
No more than a month after we began dating I received a call for a governent job halfway across the country in Texas!!!!!! She and I were both crushed because we had really began to become really close and enjoyed where the relationship was headed but I had to leave in order to begin my career. After I moved to Texas and both of us taking our time and learning more about each other we became official boyfriend and girlfriend on June 25th 2010. The long distance of me being in Texas and Jenise still in Alabama was not really that bad over the course of the first year because it forced us to really learn the other person for who they really are because you are not blinded by the physical affection at times, but I would take trips every month or every other month to visit. We would have our fights and disagreements every now and then but nothing different that any other couple would go thru.
Our relationship took a LARGE hit in the summer of 2011 when her older Brother Justin was in a car accident and was killed by a drunk driver. It was a very trying time for our relationship especially it being long distance with her pain from losing him and I began to struggle within myself because I couldn't be there for her and it really took a toll on our relationship. We had our ups and downs and really almost ended up going our seperate ways but after time and continual prayer we began to improve slowly but surely and we took it day by day. At the beginning of this year 2012, I received confirmation that it was time to ask Jenise to be my wife and move her here to Texas and we could finally be together, but planning a proposal in Alabama would be a very tough task.
Jenise is so inquisitive and wants to be involved in everything so anything that looks suspicious she is going to ask questions, so my cousin and I devised a plan to make her believe she was helping my younger cousin propose to his longtime girlfriend. This way, anything that might have made her think I was about to propose to her was dismissed by her thinking the plan was for my yonger cousin. So to make a long story short, she helped plan her own marriage proposal and never had any idea.
The slideshow I have linked below will show you the proposal better than I can, ENJOY watching the big SWITCHAROO, and thank you for letting me share the story of our relationship with you. Be Blessed

Picking my wedding dress from Best for Bride was completely painless. I was a little discouraged at first and wasn't loving the dress. Everyone wanted me to choose when the sales associate Natalia asked me if I had tried on a certain dress. When I responded "no", she told me to try it on and that it was going to be my dress. She was right!! I was crying before I left the changeroom, and once my mom and wedding party saw it and started crying I knew I had found the dress. I kept losing weight leading up until the wedding and alterations was great, fitting the dress exactly how I wanted it. When I walked down the aisle and my husband started to cry I knew then just how perfect the dress was. Thank you so much for making me feel like a princess on my wedding day!!!!
Dear Best For Bride Bridal Boutique,
My husband and I would like to say a big thank you for all your assistance, in helping me get my beautiful wedding dress in time for our wedding which was on the August 20, 2005. I know it was quite a task, as I ordered the dress only about 7 weeks to the wedding, but you were very patient, pleasant and helpful. We really appreciate it! We've attached a photo of us in our special day.
Thank you, thank you and thank you again!
So tell me about your experience at Barrie Best for Bride.
It was amazing. I came in just to look. My wedding is still 14 months away so I just kind of came in to get an idea and bridesmaid colors and designs and ended up finding my bridesmaid dresses as well as my wedding dress. The staff was amazing. They were really helpful at sizing. They were really helpful with the pricing and they were amazing with my bridesmaids. One of them was getting emotional and they were amazing helping there as well.
It is just highly recommended. I absolutely loved it.
Thank you so much.
You are very welcome.
So Miranda, tell us about your experience at Best for Bride.
It's been phenomenal. I have come in. I did not really have much an idea of what I wanted. The girls were able to pick off the shelves, kind of twick what my preferences were and tell me what body shape was going to work best for me.
In general, they were just totally patient with me. The whole experience was phenomenal and I cannot wait to come back and be fitted for my dress.
Wonderful, thank you so much.
